Loot Crate December 2014: Anniversary

The latest Loot Crate’s shipped; mine arrived this afternoon…a few days earlier than I’d anticipated.

Yet I think I can say this is–for me–the most disappointing of the four Crates I’ve gotten so far.

Given I’m led to believe some folks consider the contents of these to be “spoilers” and such, I’m putting the rest of this post behind a cut.

The October Loot Crate…stuff

After getting sucked in for last month’s “Galactic” crate, I stuck around for October’s…and it’s arrived, albeit a bit later than I’d expected.

I can’t say I’m really all that impressed with this month’s box. In and of itself, it’s definitely not worth it just for the Sharknado survival guide–which to me is the best thing in the whole mess. Not really a t-shirt guy, don’t care for the print, or the “tattoos” or the mini weapon or such.

And even the Walking Dead issue doesn’t do anything for me–I left off (in print) with #102 or so, this puts me with a 30-issue gap.

Can’t think of what November’s might be, but it’s a good thing I started with the Galactic one, cuz this one by itself would’ve left me soured on the whole concept.

My First Lootcrate

I’ve been hearing about these “Lootcrate” things for a few months, but only recently really had ’em brought to my fuller attention. And with the advertising push for the September crate–the month’s theme being “Galactic”–I gave in and decided to go ahead and order one.

loot_crate_september14_01So my first Lootcrate arrived this week…I don’t know what size box I was truly expecting, but this was not a bad size at all.

loot_crate_september14_02And at first dig-through, I’m pretty content with my “loot.” One of those blind-pack “mystery mini” figurines (Malcolm Reynolds…so not quite so “blind” in terms of this month’s crate). A Lootcrate-exclusive Tribble. A RetroAction figure from the Alien wave (I got Ripley…I was expecting the Alien itself, so kinda disappointed there. Not really sure what to make of the other stuff…not particularly impressed with the other inserts.

loot_crate_september14_03But I’d have to say the Tribble and the Mal Reynolds mini are largely worth it by themselves…the Ripley/Alien figure makes the dollar value worthwhile. I figure the Alien figure would be $10, the Tribble would probably be at least $5-$9 if not $10, and the mystery mini would be at least $6.

All in all, not bad, and while I may not be overly “excited” by what I’ve got, they’re cool to have, and I look forward to finding out what October’s theme will be.
